    F                          Gm                                 Am


Imagine her, all of her wealth, and in the arms of somebody else





              C


I imagine her in bed





    F                         Gm                                Am


With her communication skills, cabinet full of creams and pills





                         C


Paying the bills, being well read

You'll never understand, the wonderful mind of the woman


          Am            C


Powerful beauty in her eyes





 E                             D


Look at that business woman, she's got a head on her shoulders


 E                                               C


Look at that business woman, she's not that much older than you





And she reveals inner soul, stopped like the flutters in death's robes


When she reveals her secret life


All of the gifts come dear and swift, promise her anything only if


You're gonna have to leave your wife





She'll never understand, the wonderful mind of the woman


Beautiful power in her eyes





Look at that business woman, she's got a head on her shoulders


Look at that business woman, she's not that much older than you

And when she comes the stars explode, exquisite results in input mode


Just when she comes she's suddenly gone


Maybe you'll find her maybe you won't, maybe she loves you baby she don't


Maybe you'll find you are alone





You'll never comprehend, all of her means all of her ends


Business woman in her eyes





Look at that business woman, she's got a head on her shoulders


Look at that business woman, she's not that much older than you

You must have heard about my little problem


Bb           F


Oh come on, you must have heard about it


Bb         F               C


It's no ordinary problem, look in my eyes there can be no doubt about it


Bb                  F                 Bb                F


And of course it gets worse at night, it gets late, things start to change


Bb                       F


Clock has stopped thermometer is bulging


 C


Hot late night bound to make us estranged


Bb                  F                 Bb                     F


Soft and new, all over her shoulders, cold shadow in the glare of the glow


Bb                       F


Factory billboards on outskirts of city


  C


Shine down new attractions to the traffic below


Dm               C                  Dm


Remember this day, remember this room


              C                           Gm          Bb  Dm          Bb


Remember the singer singing I remember you, a sudden flash, a sudden light

Fluorescent bedroom flicker starts to teach me to wonder


Bb                  F


I hear a mandolin, in the springs


Bb                             F


Out the wardrobe floats the hint of a rumour


  C


Dressed in your beloved's finest things


 Bb                                F


Can you hear the voices that are constantly talking


Bb                   F


Am I only one to succumb to their roar


Bb                  F                C


Well I know, the form it is taking, it's not making sense anymore


Bb                      F


The way you say, you just want to help me


Bb                           F


The way your clinging is slinging me under


Bb                       F              C


The strength I need already denied me, your big ideas and your little


wonder

Some people don't come over because of the problem


Bb                             F


I heard the tough guy won't answer his phone


Bb                        F                   C


I wonder if he has the same kind of problem, a little difficulty of his


own


Bb                          F                 Bb                      F


So take this plastic and rent me some wheels, or maybe I'll try to fly


Bb                      F


No reservations I'll see how it feels


        C


When I'm over your house, up in the sky

And when the sun is squeezing through the blinds, you will be far away


Bb                           F


Deep afternoon seeing the moon will have shined


 C


Deep in your dream, I hear you say, say


Bb                      F               Bb                     F


Have you heard about my little problem, I just know that it isn't a secret


Bb                  F


It's just a very ordinary problem

The secret doesn't matter if you keep it or leak it

Some notes about MLP:

Bb(add E) is played as a regular Bb barred on fret 1 without the barre:
xx|||| |||||| ||ooo|

Also, if you want to play along with the CD you might find a problem. Some of the tracks on my "Sometime Anywhere" CD are not in perfect pitch. For MLP, I had to tune the guitar down about 1/3 of a semi-tone. You'll see what I mean if you try and get your guitar in tune with the song. As for you piano players ... my commiserations. :)

But for any of you wanting to do TABs or CRDs for the SA album keep in mind to make sure the song is in tune. On a couple of the songs I had to tune down about 1/2 a semitone. Other songs were in perfect tune, so I don't know what was going on in that studio at the time.

Brian Adds: When I saw The Church play this song live it was down a fourth from the recording. It looked much easier to play too - the opening chords are Fmaj7 and C. On each one lift your first finger off the C, then back on. I'm sure you get the idea !

Authority

     She says it's ok


          G                                  Am           Fmaj7


     The rent just went in entertainment, but  who's gonna say


C         Fmaj7


     It's just not my day


            G                                      Am             Fmaj7


     She's got enough stuff to get real tough and she's not gonna play





          C                                          Fmaj7


     The holiday is over, the honeymoon is over, the garden's overgrown


           G                                           Am           Fmaj7


     The trust is rusted, the rake's been busted, the seeds are sown


           C                                     Fmaj7


     The sounds of my breath, what do you expect, echo in the hall


           G                                         Am             Fmaj7


     The ghost of a picture still haunts the master bedroom mirrored wall





    Dm7                      Em7               Fmaj7               G


     I suppose you'd say she made a fool of me, oh but she has authority





C       Fmaj7


     It used to be fine


      G                                        Am            Fmaj7


     Days full of music, nights full of music, music all the time


C      Fmaj7


     Invisible light


     G                                  Am           Fmaj7


     I try my best but I transgressed it  used to be fine





           C                                       Fmaj7


     The chances are used up, the finances used up, energy is low


      G                                          Am              Fmaj7


     Letters are returned, lovers are spurned, delivered quite a blow


          C                                            Fmaj7


     The signs of disaster, I wouldn't put it past her, daggers in the dark


           G                             Am          Fmaj7


     The stale perfume in her old room, heart of the shark





    Dm7                      Em7                Fmaj7            G


     I suppose you'd say she made a slave of me, oh but she has authority





C      Fmaj7


     I guess that that's all


          G                                           Am            Fmaj7


     The curtain comes down, the circus leaves town, leaves begin to fall


C      Fmaj7


     I guess that that's it


          G


     The world keeps spinning, people keep sinning


     Am                   Fmaj7


     All the rest is just bullshit





           C


     The shadow's getting longer, the widow's getting younger


        Fmaj7


     The cup doth overflow


          G                                       Am          Fmaj7


     The luxury of pity, babe this wasn't pretty, on with the show


      C                                           Fmaj7


     Life is a tangle, a one night triangle, some tangle of life limps


           G                                     Am          Fmaj7


     You sleep like a baby, precious as a ruby, goodbye everything





    Dm7                      Em7               Fmaj7            G


     I suppose you'd say she made a fool of me, oh but she has authority





     C  /  /  /  Fmaj7  /  /  /  G  /  /  /  Am  /  Fmaj7  /





      C


     Words were all spoken, promises are broken


     Fmaj7


     Sleepers are awoken, frogs are a-croakin'


      G                                        Am      Fmaj7      C


     Fires are a-smokin', gifts just a token of  authority
